I created a painting and poem pairing based on the mental effects of the COVID-19 continuing pandemic. These pieces represent staying grounded and balanced during the times of the pandemic and all forms of destruction that occurred over the past year. I wanted to create a piece that reflects humans dealing with destruction, especially from the coronavirus pandemic, its effects on the human mindset and outlook on life. I was inspired by artist Dhruvi Acharya when creating these pieces, aiming to create a depiction of my thoughts and feelings in a world of violence and discord.
The painting is made with watercolor and acrylic paints.
